walmart entertainment stand – Initially you might think choosing a TV stand is a simple matter to do, but it is just when you begin searching, that you realise how enormous the options are. Different colors, a few made of glass, some wood, a few metal or a combination, corner stands, TV cabinets, cantilever stands, the list goes on.
Size of the TV Stand
This is very important since the rack has to be big enough, but not so big that it dwarfs your TV and seems too big. Stands are usually quoted as being suitable for TVs up to a certain size. This means you should not put a TV on it that is larger than that which is advocated, however you can get away with TVs that are marginally smaller.
Tip: Assess your TV measurements and compare this to the rack, particularly the width. It will look odd if the TV overhangs the border, and it might not be safe. If you think you might upgrade to a larger TV in the not too distant future, you might want to consider obtaining a stand that is a bit larger than what you want. Not too big though, otherwise your existing TV will appear strange on a stand that is far too big for this. Plus a few stands with brackets will only be suitable for TVs within a specific size range.
Which Colour, Design and Material Do You Want the Stand to Be?
These kinds of stands frequently arrive in a more traditional fashion box like shape. They generally have drawers, enclosed doors or shelves on front. Many TV cabinets are also generally made of timber as the main material, and a few might have glass doors.
Tip: If you are going to put your gear like SKY, DVD player etc within the cupboard, you’ll want to make sure the remote sensor is visible through the glass door or board.
With these stands that your TV is mounted on a bracket, which raises the TV above the stand. This is a great option if you’re searching for a contemporary appearance and is just feasible for LCD and plasma TVs.
Corner TV Stands
As the name implies, these stands are for when you put the TV in the corner of the space. The stand appears the same as a normal stand from the front, but it narrows slightly towards the back, so it fits more snuggly into a corner.
Tip: Corner stands are great if you are tight on space, since you are going to be able to push the rack further in the corner and save a few much needed centimetres.
Most wooden TV stands are normally made out of wooden veneers not solid wood, helping to keep the cost down. You should ideally start looking for exactly the exact same type of timber as your existing furniture, so it matches up and does not look strange.
Based on the model and make, TV stands may arrive in ash, beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut.
Tips: Should you like a particular type of rack but do not like the type of wood, it is worth asking if other kinds of timber are available (contact us here). If you’d like a better quality rack, start looking for models that are created with ‘actual’ wood veneers, as they are usually difficult to tell from actual solid wood.
Glass TV Stands
Again as the name implies these stands are mainly made of glass, usually comprising 2-3 toughened glass shelves with metal supports.
Tip: Many glass stands come with either black or clear glass shelves. So if you just see a black glass variation but want clear glass, it is always worth asking since both versions are often offered.
While the hottest stand colour nowadays is black, you’ll also find them in silver, white and red. Some more contemporary designs will also be offered in a high gloss finish. So keep an eye out for colors that’ll fit in and enhance your room design.
